In addition to Old Town Square, the DDA offers the following unique venues in downtown Fort Collins for meetings, performances, parties and other events.

Opera Galleria

Located a 123 North College Avenue, the ground floor atrium of the Opera Galleria is a public space that is available for community functions. Art exhibits, chamber music concerts, the Winter Farmers’ Markets, craft shows, and First Night Fort Collins have all used the space. Please be aware that use of the public ground floor area cannot impede regular business activity or pedestrian traffic. The soaring atrium can make sound a challenge. The ground floor atrium space is not available for closed private parties.
